431. A Parting Hymn We Sing

1 A parting hymn we sing
around your table, Lord;
again our grateful tribute bring,
our solemn vows record.

2 Here have we seen your face,
and felt your presence here;
so may the savor of your grace
in word and life appear.

3 We're purchased by your blood,
by sin no longer led,
the path our dear Redeemer trod
may we rejoicing tread.

4 In self-forgetting love
be our communion shown,
until we join the church above,
and know as we are known.
